SLP tank on a Luxe?

Hey guys, I am about to get my first Luxe and have a question about which kind of tank I can use on the Luxe.
I am currently running a ninja SLP on my G6R, could that tank be used on a Luxe 1.5?

I have run my Luxe off a SLP reg in the past and it worked well, but was a little inconsistent. I have found that 450 to 550 output seems to work best for my Luxe, and I know some people run a normal 800 psi output tank with no issues.

Agreed. I tried one on a Luxe and had the same issues Big Poppa mentioned above, but I have heard of it working for people.

Big Pappa Pink is correct. I actually did a comparrison video on this topic.

You want a simple explanation?

If the regulator regulates the pressure coming out of the regulator and into the gun, what difference does it make with what pressure is going in? It is going to be the same pressure after the regulator going into the solenoid and firing chamber no matter what input pressure you use.

Different Luxe engines operate at different pressures.

I have used 800 PSI on all my guns with no issue. Whats the benefit of running 550 over 800? My gun will stop shooting when my tank hits 800 PSI and yours will shoot down to 550 PSI.

To low of an input pressure and you run into starvation issues and velocity fluxuations. I ran a SLP and had a velocity range of +/- 25-40 FPS in the volley of shots as opposed to +/- 3-6 FPS with standard pressure.

PART 1


PART 2

I tried one on my 2.0. It was fine for single shots but at higher rates of fire I had bad shootdown. My velocity would go from 290's to 215 at 12.5 bps.

Hey Luxe owners
GS SLPs systems are Not recommended for Luxes.
For best results: Mid pressure 550-650psi input is required for optimal performance. For more info PM anytime. were here for ya

600 psi is the recommended tank output pressure from dlx, anything lower can effect recharge rate causing drop off and constancy issues.

550psi seems like the golden number works really well for me

The luxe reg was designed to run on a high pressure tank. The spring pack and piston was designed this way. Yes you can use a lower pressure tank but it can cause issues with consistency.
